UK Board of Trustees

The Fund for Global Human Right UK is the European sister organization of the Fund for Global Human Rights (charity number 1151043). Based in London, the Fund for Global Human Rights UK works independently to fund frontline human rights defenders in close collaboration and with support from the Fund for Global Human Rights (based in Washington, D.C.).

The Fund for Global Human Rights UK is independently governed by a Board of Trustees with deep expertise in charity governance, human rights work, and philanthropy. UK trustees also sit on the Fund’s Global Board of Directors to allow both entities to align strategies and vision.
